I faced my fears and went snorkelling in the bay here on holiday this morning. Loved it! Couldn’t have gone any further than paddling without the swimming lessons, thanks Sophie, you are a star!
The children have come such a long way… My daughter was so scared of the water and now she can’t wait to go every week.. Thank you too all the staff the children love it
Three weeks ago my five year old daughter was terrified of going in the pool – clinging to the side, crying and screaming. Today, thanks to extra and excellent attention from Lucy, I watched her jump in the pool, on her own, with a huge grin on her face. Couldn’t be prouder!
Having never swum a stroke in my life, we took the plunge and decided to join Sean and the girls. The lessons were very friendly with no pressure. Their knowledge was invaluable.
I have used Sean’s Swim School for my 2 younger children, now aged 9 & 11 and they are both confident swimmers with fantastic technique. Sean and his staff use lots of praise and encouragement, they are very approachable. My 11 year old had outgrown the top class but wasn’t strong enough for the next stage, Sean set up an improver class for children like her to get them ready for squad swimming. My older daughter still moans that she missed out and although she had swimming lessons, wasn’t taught the techniques that her siblings were taught. They now belong to a swimming club and are really good swimmers.
My son was extremely nervous in the water so after several months at his previous swim school I gave up. Sean’s Swim School was recommended by my neighbour as her daughter attended the School. I called Sean to arrange a trial lesson. My son couldn’t wait to go back, the interaction between the teachers and the children is very good. I can’t praise Sean’s Swim School enough.
After trying other swim schools where my son would not even enter the swimming pool and I ended up wetter than him! I tried Sean’s Swim School and my son has come on wonders and this is so lovely to see, he started in the small pool and after a few sessions he became confident in the water, and after a few months he has now gone up to the big pool which he loves. All of the staff are friendly and professional and the confidence they have given my son in the water is amazing. I would highly recommend the swim school to anyone.
Sean’s Swim School offers children a wonderful opportunity to learn to swim properly in a friendly, fun and safe environment. My 8 year old son has attended Sean’s Swim classes regularly and has become a confident, sound swimmer who has quickly progressed into the advanced class – thanks to the progress monitoring of the instructors. The lessons are structured and the instructors are friendly, professional, caring and will encourage your children to progress to the next level. They offer expert tuition as most are members of swimming clubs or lifeguard themselves, and will focus their attention on the ability of your child. I can highly recommend them.
Seans swim school has been great for my son giving him extra confidence and plenty of swimming practice and exercise in a great environment. I can highly recommend this school.
Sean’s Swim School has taught our 3 daughters to swim. The youngest has just turned 6 and is now perfecting her strokes! Each teacher has been sensitive, caring, encouraging and travelled at just the right pace. As a result we have 3 water confident girls. I have no hesitation in recommending Sean’s Swim School.
I have a foster son who has learned to swim along with my grand children at Bodiam a really big thankyou to Sean, Liz and all the instructors for making this possible I have recently been on holiday to Italy where Shane wouldn’t come out of the pool. Well done to all involved at this fantastic swimming school.
My three children all go to Sean’s swimming school. I cannot recommend it highly enough. They have helped my son get over his phobia of water,to become a confident swimmer. All my children love swimming and are always looking forward to their next lesson. The teachers are excellent, very supportive and encouraging.
Sean’s Swim School is superb! Both my children love their lessons and are becoming confident swimmers. Each week they are challenged with something new to learn whilst having lots of fun along the way. I’m delighted that they’re being taught the correct technique from the outset. The small classes led by expert teachers in the water mean that the children improve quickly and their progress is monitored. I highly recommend Sean’s Swim School.
My son had been to lots of swimming lessons elsewhere and just clung to me in the water. When we went to Seans Swim School he was able to start somewhere where his feet touched the floor and build up confidence. He was soon moved up a class to match his ability; being taught by instructors makes all the difference and is definately the way forward! Would highly recommend the school and have to my friends!
I used to take my Son to swimming lessons elsewhere, everytime I use to mention he was going swimming lesson, he would cry, In the end I took him out. He now goes to Seans Swimschool and the difference in him is unbelievable, he now skips into his lesson. I put this down to the Friendly teacher who Praises him endless so therefor gives him confidence which he never received at the other school….I would highly recommend this school and have done. Very Pleased!
Sean’s swim school is great for adults too!! After years of being terrified of the water and trying and then failing to conquer my fear,I’ve finally got a certificate to prove I CAN swim!! My one to one lessons have been fun with a very understanding teacher who recognises and acknowledges the difficulties a scared adult faces in the pool. Every lesson has been motivating and has finished on a high,with lots of laughter throughout. I never thought I’d say it but I look forward to getting in the water now! Yes I still have a lot to learn and yes I still get frightened at times but Sean’s swim school has given me the confidence to know I’m going to get there! Thanks to you all!
My 5 year old son has been attending for 2 years now. He wasn’t that confident in the water but he is now progressing really well. His instructor Alexandra has been amazing with him with lots of encouragement and praise to keep him motivated. I really enjoy watching his lessons as I see improvement and progress at every one now.
My daughter has come on so much since having lessons at bodiam with James, he makes it fun as well as teaching important skills, she loves going!
My daughter Ellie loves her swimming lessons at Sean’s Swim School, her teacher Tracy is excellent and has helped Ellie with her confidence 100%. Ellie only started lessons in September and is already doing very well.
Sean’s swim school is fantastic. The teachers are very competent, enthusiastic and friendly, they endlessley encourage the children.The classes are small so each child gets the attention they deserve. Also what I really love about it is that the pool is divided into classes of different abilities so all my kids are taught within the same hour and a half. Their swimming has improved 100% since coming here and they all love coming.
Seans swim school has helped my child’s physical development as well as teaching him to swim. The approach has always been thoughtful, careful and helpful. It has helped build his confidence and physical ability which has been delayed by 18 months due to medical condition from birth. I cannot praise Sean and his staff enough.
Sean’s Swim School has enabled our two children to become confident and competent swimmers. Their patience and encouragement with my son, who for many, many weeks would only sit on the side, was brilliant. The team’s enthusiasm is fantastic. I feel I couldn’t have made a better choice for my children.
I am an 11 year old who swims here, Seans Swim School’s awesome, if I didn’t have Sean as a teacher I wouldn’t even be able to swim anywhere near the standard I do now thank you Sean.
Our Daughter has progressed steadily and confidently through to currently Stage 4. She has developed a love of water and swimming from not even wanting to get water on her face or her head under water to jumping in and swimming all three strokes without a moments hesitation. Sean and the team have allowed her to progress at her own pace whilst gently challenging and improving her technique in every lesson. We couldn’t recommended them more highly.
Joined Sean’s swim school for my son’s lessons a few years ago and never looked back. He has gone from strength to strength and we have seen his confidence grow. The admin side is simple and you can also pay online. Staff are friendly and encouraging.
Awesome place to learn to swim. The teachers are very friendly and patient. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to swim.
I met Sean 22 months ago when I said I wanted to Swim the channel, until this point everyone I spoke to laughed, as I had not swum before! Sean spent a lot of his time with me teaching me how to swim! I am proud to say that with Sean’s help & along side Sean a team of 6 successfully swum the English Channel in a 2-way relay taking 25 hours and 8 minutes! I have swum the Channel & made a friend for life! Since I have returned from the Swim, my girls go to Sean’s Swim School & they love it
Accommodated my sons needs being a younger one when he started. And being quite the handful that he is the teacher has continued to patiently teach him and persist, The children have got so much better and confident over the last couple of terms. I was so pleased recommended it to a friend whose son now goes too. Highly recommend!
All 4 of my children have learnt to swim, or improved their swimming, through the swim school. Sean has always been very proactive, making sure everyone is in the right class which is challenging but never too hard so that their confidence deserts them.
